The River Dancing

The river keeps flowing by,
whispering under the stars,
murmuring under the sun,
carrying within its cold current 
words to songs impossible to write.

The Blackfoot River;
bouncing between boulders,
winding by willows,
pushing past pines.

The purity of river music
would be diminished by words,
so I  linger on the riverbank,
grateful for the gift of time,
witnessing the water
swirling with poetry.

Art in perpetual motion.
Time flowing forward. 
Water dancing with the land.
